medical table
Wiltshire-based Dyson is joining the growing number of British design engineering companies to develop a ventilator for the NHS and the Government has ordered 10,000.

The company said it had been working with Cambridge-based medical company the Technology Partnership to develop a “meaningful and timely response”.

“This is a highly complex project being undertaken in an extremely challenging timeframe,” a statement said. The order is still subject to the devices passing stringent medical tests but that is expected to happen quickly.
